Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Human Rights

Mr. Speaker, this government has taken a strong position on human rights, and the Prime Minister has shown great leadership.
When Durban I was going on, it was this party and the Prime Minister who called on Canada to abstain and not to go. The United States and Israel walked out on that anti-Semitic hatefest. Israel begged Canada to leave and Canada refused.
Thank goodness we have a Prime Minister and a government that put human rights at the top of the agenda and are proud to do it and express Canadian values each and every single day.
